Day 17 today was great
Today I had FUN! haha. But really I did, I went to the city to see my middle one and ended up with a BONUS of spending the day with oldest AND middle. We ate delicious food at a Native Foods cafe, which is a vegan restaurant, and although none of us are vegans... we love good food. We had a wonderful coffee at one of the five million cute coffee shops in the city. (why can't we have some of those out here??) We jumped my oldest's car which had a dead battery and went grocery shopping. None of which may sound like the ideal day...but it was. The company was outstanding. I don't see my grown kids that often. (Middle spent the last 2 years in London and oldest is busy with his amazing life.) I love spending time with them, honestly. I always have enjoyed their company. I'm really lucky.
On the drive back home I was thinking 'What am I going to write about today? What what what??'
I had a stream of conscious thoughts in the car that are random I suppose and probably a bit boring...but that's what I am going with.
WHY do people NOT use turn signals? I don't get it. When you get off the tollway onto Rt 173 it is soooooo dark. You'd think they might transition you with some street lights.... The Trader Joes in the city are so ridiculously busy on Sunday evening. I guess all grocery stores in the city are, but out here they're dead on Sunday nights. I bought myself some tulips for 4.99!!!! Tulips! so worth it. When I'm at home I play music a lot of the time, most of the time, but in my car, I like it quiet...isn't that weird? I almost always borrow a book from them, when I visit my oldest and his girlfriend's (she was out of town, sadly) and today was no exception. Middle and I love to talk in a "hillbilly" accent (apologies to any southerners with this actual accent) We find it hilarious for some reason. Oldest doesn't partake. I am going to do some new signs this week. Inspired. Middle talked about his wrinkles. (?) He is 24 years old. Oh to be 24. But not really. Oldest recently moved into a lovely new apartment around Xmas time, and I got to see it for the first time today. A big ass snowstorm is predicted for next week....but today it was spring-like in the city. (Like 40 degrees!!) Weather is so weird. I have not been using my SAD light like I should. (this is a seasonal-disorder-light which "brings the light of a springtime morning" into your life) Need to make time for this. These tulips are almost as good. Middle got some too. Remember, before GPS, when people used maps and atlases to get places! Oh it is so much nicer now. I still love maps though. We talked about movies and they said Blue Valentine is super super sad...but really good. Maybe I'll see it. Somedays I struggle but today was excellent. x #500wordsaday
